Cyst Reduction Water Filters

Cysts, such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, are protozoan parasites found in the intestinal tracts of animals. The feces of infected animals contaminate surface waters such as lakes, streams, ponds, shallow wells, and groundwater under the influence of surface water (GUDI). For more information, read A Guide to Filtering Water from the CDC.

Cysts are tiny, microscopic organisms commonly found in contaminated water sources. Some well-known cysts include Giardia and Cryptosporidium, which can cause gastrointestinal illnesses when ingested.

Cyst-reduction water filters can remove these microscopic pathogens, making the water safe for consumption. These filters typically use various technologies to achieve this, such as:

  • Mechanical Filtration: The filter uses a physical barrier with tiny pores that trap cysts as water passes through.
  • Adsorption: Certain filter media, such as activated carbon, can adsorb cysts, effectively removing them from the water.
  • Chemical Disinfection: Some filters may incorporate elements that release disinfectants like iodine or chlorine, which can help neutralize cysts.

Not all water filters are designed to remove cysts, so if cyst reduction is a concern, choose a filter that explicitly mentions this capability on its packaging or product description.
